The day was pleasant as the class, composed of 288 members; filed slowly down the long walk led by Class Marshal, David Resnick; and class officers Alfred Spence, President; William Mcintosh, Vice-President; Nancy Dorn, Secretary; and Fred Loud, Treasurer. They were attired in maroon and gold caps and gowns— their school colors. The band was led by Mr. Jack and consisted of members from all classes, who played stirring music throughout the exercises. The welcoming speech was given by the president, Alfred Spence, after which the invoca- tion was given. Songs were sung by the entire class. Excellent speeches were given by several prominent Weymouth people. The announcement of those receiving scholarships was given and many of the students were so honored. The honor essay- ists, comprising three outstanding students of the class, gave their speeches. With the help of junior ushers, diplomas were then distributed, after which a closing prayer was given. The ceremony ~will certainly be a memorable experience in the lives of the class of 1947. There was no rest for teachers whose 1001ns faced the front of the building when parts of a trainer cuh were hoisted through the win- dows of 214A and B to aid the students in the study of aviation. Those air-raid drills which were held almost daily to safe-guard us in the event of an actual raid were certainly hoped for in the event of an examination. . . . A Booster Club was formed to consist of members of all classes to pep up the cheering at the foot- ball games and were certainly an asset at many of the rallies. They could see many of their pals up there on the stage, screaming away. Chemistry . . . Do you remember your first day in the lab . . . those huge clouds of smoke that came billowing forth from 305? The boys wanted to use everything in sight while the girls were afraid to touch anything. Conversations between teachers and pupils went like this: "Please, sir, do I have to make chlorine gas?" "Does this burn?" It's a wonder some of us are still alive! . . . Bottles on the desks! What is this? Many of the seniors had to bring grasshoppers to school for the study of biology. If one should accidently happen to get loose, the screams of the girls could be heard from one end of the building to the other. . . . A thousand-word history essay on the Constitution. Many a senior sat down with books before him to (Continued on Page 4) WEATHER Clear and bright, with no sudden change expected in the near future. EXTRA! MISSING PROPHECY FOUND! Police and detectives finally located the missing class prophecy of the grad- uating class at Weymouth High. It was found in the hide-out of Jack the Zipper, cached under a loose board. Jack couldn't be reached by the reporters for ques- tioning, but it was believed that he stole it from the class of 1947. The text read as follows: (Continued on Page 6) News Highlights Service Claims Students No less than twelve promising graduates left our wonderful high school in 1946 for service in the United States Army or Navy in order to be eligible for benefits under the G. I. Bill of Rights. Among the prospective graduates were Arnold Cook, Raymond DAmbrosia, Frank DeLorenzo, Paul Leary, Robert Horsch, Vito Pardo, Russell Steele, and Albert Sheehan, all from South Weymouth.

Boys and girls will have become great athletes, business-men, secre- taries, housewives, and so forth. For all this they can thank their coaches and teachers, because under their guidance they were taught not only to be good students and athletes, but also to be good leaders and alert citi- zens. We know that, even though as students they did not always show it, they were thankful for the training they received at good old Wey- mouth High School. Class of '47 Makes Debut Having bowed out of the ranks ol undergraduates this morning in an impressive graduation ceremon) . the Class of 1947 will hold its (lass banquet and graduation reception in the high school building. As these former students prepare for the bright future which lies before them, they will recall the many social activities which were enjoyed at Weymouth High School. Class of '47 Enrolled at High School On September 2, 1943, the Class of '47 entered its freshman year at Weymouth High School, well pre- pared for its ensuing four years of education. A new era, filled with new friends, new activities, and new opportunities faced the students as they gathered from North, South, East Weymouth, and Weymouth Landing. During the freshman year a news-letter, "Wey- mouth Highlights," was compiled and sent periodically to classmates who had entered the armed forces. The Student Council sponsored an Athletic Dance in honor of the football team on December 3— to furnish '47 its first social activity. Another social event, viewed by most of the class, was the senior play, "A Woman of Fifteen," which was a huge success. 1944-1945 After a brief summer vacation, the students returned to the 1944— 1945 school year in a hub-bub of talk concerning vacation. Gradually they became accustomed to the rules and regulations of the school and what was expected of them. They saw themselves reflected in ihe newly arrived "spectators," their freshman counterparts, and many a smile was seen, or remark passed, on what they, themselves, had so recently done. On December 7, an able committee made up of student council members sponsored the Athletic Dance in honor of the football team. The Senior Play, "Youth Takes Over," was witnessed by many and considered a great success. February 25 found Wey- mouth High's auditorium filled to capacity for the "Star Spangled Re- view," under the direction of Mr. John Lyons, with members of the band, orchestra, choir, and glee club participating. It was a colorful musical spectacle enjoyed by all. •945-1946 Junior year (1945-46) found '47 fully accustomed now to Weymouth High, more socially minded than ever. The Athletic Dance on De- cember 7 was a success and was followed shortly by an equally successful athletic banquet. The class was mighty proud of the "swell" job Priscilla Schlusemeyer and Barbara Dwyer, '47, were doing as cheer leaders. The Christmas assembly found members of all classes presenting the play, "Why the Chimes Rang." January 10 found the auditorium filled for the Winter Concert, under the di- rection of Mr. Russell Jack, with members of the band, orchestra, and choir taking part. Again on May 24 the Spring Concert was presented and was equally success- continued on Page 14) Letters to the Editor Dear Editors, We, a group of prospective grad- uates of the Weymouth Trade School, have taken this opportunity to write to you about changes during our years here. One of the saddest occurences was the passing of Mr. Bryan on October 16, 1946. His loss was a serious blow both to the Trade School and our class. Several veterans returned to our class to graduate in '47. They were Faulds, Pierce, Wood, Bishop, Stevenson, and Miller. We were favored with two new teachers, Mr. Piepei, Carpentry, and Mr. Hoyle, Auto Repair. A new course in carpentry was also in- stalled. Lastly, one of our many accom- plishments was an interesting ex- hibition on May 10, 1946. In closing, we wish you all the best of luck in your fine publication. Sincerely yours, Class of '47 Weymouth Trade School Page Eighteen THE WEYMOUTH RECORDER 3 SPORTS WEYMOUTH COPS THIRD STATE CROWN Again for the third straight year, Weymouth High's track team, paced by its great captain, Dick Liva, walked off with lop laurels at the State Meet in Boston. Liva won the dash and second. Along with Dick as stars were Bill Mills, whom Liva broad jump, and ran anchor in the relay team, which came in had to beat in the broad jump, Phil Shepherd placing third in the dash, and Bob Parsons in the hurdles. We must not, however, forget Mr. Page, who ably coached his team on to its glorious victory. 1943 > 1944 Coach Arlanson Enters Navy After a successful year which ended with t he winning of the Stale Class B Championship, Harry Arlanson, Weymouth's great coach, left W. H. S. to become a member <>l a much bigger team, that of the U. S. Navy. Weymouth Takes Second Place In State Track Meet Under the very able coaching of Oral Page, tiie Weymouth track- sters took a second place in the .Stale Meet at Boston Gardens. Basketball Notes The basketball team, under the supervision of Coach Jack Gannon, had a good year considering the inexperience of the team. Baseball Faced with the ever-present problem of having inexperienced players, Coach Delahunt shaped up a good baseball team, which won most of its games. 1944 - 1945 Weymouth Captures State Track Crown After a year of long, hard practice. Coacli Oral Page steered his boys to a decisive win in Class B of the Stale Meet. This event was run on (he massive board track at Boston Gardens. Weymouth Wins Weymouth High again showed its power in the sports field by heating a previously undefeated Milton baseball team. This was the team led by Ev Goodwin which was to go to the Eastern Massa- chusetts Schoolboy playoffs in Ten way Park, Boston. Basketball Notes The basketball team had a not too successful season, which boasted only three victories in thirteen starts. Nevertheless, the crowds that attended the games were satisfied. Paul Sweeney Takes Over Coach Paul Sweeney joined the staff of Weymouth High to fill the shoes of Harry Arlanson. Under his direction the boys did fairly well, with every game having its exciting moments. 1945 - 1946 Weymouth Wins Again A formidable challenge was met and conquered by Weymouth's track team. For the second straight year, Weymouth won the State Class B Track Meet before a capacity crowd. Football The football team had a few bad breaks this year under Paul Sweeney. After the "Turkey game," Weymouth was to have Coach Ar- lanson back. Coach Arlanson Returns After a term in the U. S. Navy, Coach Arlanson returned to bolster the causes of the baseball and foot- ball teams. Rockland Goes Down To Defeat After a just-average year, Wey- mouth High's basketball team pinned upon our neighbor Rock- land its only detent of the year. Rockland after its startling defeat went on to win the Class B Championship at the Boston Gar- dens. 1946 - 1947 Weymouth Defeats Brockton Coach Arlanson put the football team on top again this year. The team won eight games and lost the other three by only a one touch- down deficit. Highlight of the year was the defeat of Brockton by the Weymouth warriors. Brockton until this defeat was among the top contenders for Class A honors. Highlight, in reverse, Hingham— , Weymouth—! Track The track team was rather green in '47, although there were a few veterans. Sadly enough, they dropped their first dual home meet in seven years on the board track. However, their victory in the State Meet— their third in as many years —was all that was needed for a successful year. Bill Erwin Comes To Weymouth Bill Erwin, basketball coach of Braintree High, transferred to his home-town, Weymouth. Erwin is rated one of the best coaches on the South Shore, producing seven Tech Tourney teams in his ten years at Braintree. Although the basketball team had the fight and ability, luck was not with them, as they lost three games by a □ne-basket decision. c5Sl, Page Nineteen 4 THE WEYMOUTH RECORDER NEWS HIGHLIGHTS (Continued from Page 1) Douglas Perrow, Warren Pallis, James Heffernan, Thomas Tedes- co, and Harlan Stone. The best wishes of their classmates went with them. Teachers Come and Go Teachers have been coming and going at Weymouth High during the last four years for various reasons. There is, however, no secret why Miss Chase, Miss Free- man, Miss Jones, and Miss Pray saw fit to leave the pleasant sur- roundings of Weymouth High. Mr. Bates also left at the end of our freshman year to teach in a private school in Connecticut. Mr. Bates in now teaching in North Carolina. Mrs. Oppler, who will be re- membered by some of her students for her excellence in teaching, gave up her work to join her hus- band, now a busy man in Japan. Mr. Matthews, a math and science teacher, left also. After Mr. Calder- wood's retirement, Mr. Jack, who came from Auburn, Maine, be- came supervisor of music. Mrs. Bates, our fine janitress, retired recently. A sad note was struck during our years at Weymouth High when Miss MacDavitt, the nurse, whom we remembered from grammar school days, died. Shocking Item On April 12, 1945, our beloved President, Franklin Delano Roose- velt, died from a cerebral hemor- rhage. His death was a mournful occasion as everyone recalled the line qualities and great accom- plishments of an excellent man. Guidance Teacher In England A leave of absence for one year was granted to Miss Nye, guidance teacher, who left to teach in Eng- land in exchange for Miss Joan Hartley who is now leaching in Weymouth. "Old" Teachers Return! Mr. Cleaves, Mr. Kellv. Mr. Loud, Mr. Klay, Mr. Pollard, Mr. Mitchell, and Mr. Gutterson, hav ing served in the Armed Forces, came back to pro- cl from where they left off. All in all, llic- siall has < hanged mu< h din - ing oui years at Weymouth High. New Superintendent, Faculty Members, Join '47 Outstanding newcomer to Wey- mouth High was our superintend- ent, Mr. Elmer S. Mapes, who replaced Mr. Thibadeau in 1945. Miss Gloster joined the staff as librarian. Mr. Scott, chemistry and mathematics teacher, and Mr. Erwin, history teacher and basket- ball coach, also entered the ranks of teachers in Weymouth High. Completing the list of teachers new to Weymouth High were: Miss MacDougall, Mrs. Darling, Miss Palmer, Miss Salo, Miss Pope, Mrs. Wood, Miss Ghiorse, Mrs. Moats, Miss Flaherty, and Miss Corey, secretary. New Courses Prove Successful A Food, Clothing, and Nutrition Course was offered to freshman business students and was an added advantage to all who took it. An- other course that was not only interesting but extremely helpful was given as a Guidance Course to the incoming freshmen. It helped them to become acquainted with methods of studying. The effects of this course became evident in the fact that it enabled more students to make the honor roll in their later years. Design for Living, a senior course under the manage- ment of the Art Department, was instituted in 1946. O Happy Days! Happy were the days of May 8, 1945. and August 17, 1945. On these historical dates ended the two main phases of the worst war the world has ever seen. On May 8, Victory in Europe Day. the students of Wey- mouth High School heard a stirring speech by our new President, Harry S. Truman. August 17, 1945 marked the end of the war with Japan. World War II was truly an unfor- gettable experience for Weymouth students. Clubs, New and Old, Hit Stride Back To School Days The old phrase, "back to school," assumed added meaning when several ex-servicemen returned to books, bells, and blackboards, either to increase their education or to supplement it. The appearance of these returning soldiers offered sterling advice to students who were contemplating leaving school. "Grand Old Seniors"!! The senior year, most outstand- ing and longest remembered, started socially on December 5 with the Athletic Banquet, which feted the football players. December 13 found the class enjoying the Ath- letic Dance. A short play, Dickens's "Christinas Carol," was perfoimcd by members of the classes at the Christmas assembly. Mr. Jack pre- sented the Winter Concert on the evening of January 17. The Senior Play, "A Date with Judy," offered on February 14, was a tremendous success. A second performance was required February 19 to meet the clamor for tickets. A Senior Prom, arranged by an "on the job" com- mittee, was enjoyed on the evening of May 16. The evening of June 19 found members of the graduating class enjoying the Senior Reception with their friends. The outing, organized by a talented committee, was a highly thrilling affair hailed by all as they realized it was the ending of four pleasant years at Weymouh High School. MAN ABOUT TOWN (Continued from Page 1) learn more about the past. This time it seemed almost impossible to do, but the "poor" seniors fin- ally managed to pass them in. . . . "Sweet" Swing Takes Over Early in the year the class of '47 was blessed with a small group of talented "li'l" musicians. These "Petrillo worshippers" worked their way into one of the rallies and from then on each rally was set to the pace of sweet music. The small "combo" was organ- ized the first of the year by Dave (Benny Goodman) Resnick. Know- ing a good musician. Dave picked Phil ("The Hawk") Shepherd to play tenor sax. The two, realizing that they needed good rhythm, called on Joe (Kruppa) Nevins to do them the honor and "Biffer" McCue to tickle the ivories. The quartet got together and, taking a "shot in the dark," chose Bill Smith, who turned out to be a fine asset to the "Hot Tamales." . . . Phil arranged the music, con- tributed by "Biffer", to please the students of Weymouth High.

On the side, Bob is said to be giving skating istructions to some of the Hollywood Starlets who are vacationing there. The New York Yankees have certainly come up in the world the last year or so. Could it be that handsome new pitcher they so recently acquired? KEN- NETH MUNROE always did make a big hit at Weymouth so that perhaps he is now helping the Yankees to make one in New York.

Former ail-American JOHN MURPHY led beautifully to set up these giants. RICHARD CARUSO was a stalwart on the defense and prevented the Celtics from scoring on many break away shots. The half ended, Celtics 49, Davets 41. As the third quarter began, it was evident that Bailey and Cote had inspired their teams with a pep talk. This period was a fast hectic one ending 58 to 58. There was little scoring while there seemed to be a private duel be- tween Caruso and Murphy, with each dominating the floor game of their team. Bitter Struggle It was plain that both teams were out to win in the final quarter. Swan's fantastic off-balance shots didn't miss, Doyle's set shots sang a tune as they swished through the nets; and Caruso, besides person- ally slowing the Celtics' attack, scored ten quick points with his deadly right hand. Big Boucher and Hannaford really moved for big men and, if one missed a shot, the other put in the rebound. Murphy's floor game and set shots which suddenly connected also threw a monkey wrench into the Davets' passing game. As the game ended, a long shot by Murphy arched in the air and fell in, tying the game 8g to 89. By a previous agreement, the game was to end at n;oo, so there was no overtime period. This game was the largest gathering of former Ail-Americans ever to play in one game. DAVETS Flayer G. F. P.

This slim beauty, who holds more Page Twenty'four c \&-' skating records than any other woman, really put on a show for the fans here last night. "Barb" easily proved to them why she is the champ she is. MASS. INDEPENDENTS (Continued from Page 6) Doble started it olf by streaking through the middle for 37 yards and a T. D. After that GERALD SULLIVAN was on the receiving end of a long Doble pass and later- aled to JAMES DUCA who scored Every time the Massachusetts team got hold of the ball, they scored Liva and Porter both tallied on end runs with hair-raising blocks being thrown for them by CHARLES FAULD and player-coach, ROBERT CLARK. As the half ended, the Mass. team had begun to show why they were considered the nation's best. The player-coach, ROBERT CLARK, was a student of the T formation and his team exhibited a flawless demonstration of it with beautiful blocking and line play. The second half was merely a runaway with the speed king trio of Doble, Liva, and Porter running tirelessly up and down the field. The hopelessly outclassed Dons, when they did receive the ball, were literally thrown back as proved by the yards lost— 93. Fauld, Warren, Clark, Fenderson, and LaRocco were diminutive rocks of Gibralter, while "Jim" Duca and Sullivan's great catches from Doble helped the backs run up the score. The power of the Massachusetts Independents cannot be over-esti- mated as can be seen by the statistics.

"Bob" is leaving for Washington, where he will hold a conference with Senator Claghorne. Author Reveals Secret To Success MISS HELENA LEVANGIE known to many as "Ann," has at last revealed how she reached the pinnacle of success so quickly as an author. The secret to her love stories, she says, comes from listen- ing to the conversations which take place on Great Hill. Another in the series of those large Hollywood parties was held the other evening at the home of Samuel Goldwyn of Metro-Gold- wyn-Mayer. Among the many celebrities were a host of former students from Weymouth High School, Class of '47. First on the program was the vivacious radio entertainer LOR- RAINE CONDRICK who can be heard each morning on the "Rise and Shine Program" of which she is the star. Her amusing comments on "Exercises and What They Do for You" were found enjoyable by all. Following Miss Condrick was ANTHONY DANIELE, the famed concert pianist, who gave an ex- cellent performance which held his audience at complete attention. It is rumored that before Tony goes on his European tour next spring, he will return to Weymouth High School to give them a few pointers on basketball. That first class drummer with the winning smile, TONY Del BOS- CO, was next to make his appear- ance. After hearing his playing, it is not hard to understand why Tony's Saturday night program is so popular. NORMA FARRELL, the sensa- tional new singer with Vaughn Monroe, sang several of the popular songs, thus proving she has a voice as lovely as herself. Here's hoping she has a very successful careerl JANETTE JONES, the cele- brated opera singer who recently returned from a tour of Europe, sang several selections from the opera "Madam Butterfly." Miss Jones will open shortly at the "Met." ARNOLD LASSE, who is hailed as the "Frankie" of the year, sang several selections and had the younger folks swooning. The older people, however, wonder if it is Lasse's voice or his unusual ties^ Between numbers I glanced over at one of the cozy corners and there saw "GREG" MACRI.

A great deal of attention was focused on tall bloinde MARION DOYLE whose stately beauty was admired as much as the gold brocade she wore. This beauty, it is said, is only modelling to pass the time while her husband is in the service. Then all eyes turned as a girl with her blonde hair against a stylish black dress made a striking appearance. This gorgeous blonde was the new Power's find, SHIRLEY CARLSON. A series of "ohs" and "ahs" were heard when DORIS GERRY mod- elled a coral suit which added something special to her brown- haired beauty. And now, a bit about the audience of which you no doubt are interested. You would recog- nize BETTY CONNOLLY and BARBARA CONDRICK, two black-haired beauties whose lovely faces have often appeared on the leading magazines.

Another cover girl present was charming little JUANITA STUBBS, Then, too, our favorite movie comedian, RED CARTER, arrived, making this gala fashion show something to attend.

Future President? ALFRED SPENCE. present Gov- ernor of Massachusetts, is expected to be a candidate for the presidencv in the (oming election. Having stalled his career as class president anil working his way up to his present position, we all feel that "Al" has the personality and the ability to be a very capable presi- dent. HOLLYWOOD PARTY (Continued from Page <j) he rates pretty high just as he always did. That noted violinist, WILLIAM MILLS, was next on the program, .mil his music was superb. It made (he other Weymouthites wonder if perhaps all the practice he had in his sophomore year at Weymouth High School did not help on his road to fame. After the entertainment, dancing was enjoyed witli Tommy Dorscy's orchestra. The new drummer with the orchestra was none other than our own JOE NEVINS beating out time. "BOB" PIERCE, who is head bouncer at the Stork Club, was on hand. I am glad to report that he was there as a guest and not in his professional capacity. PRISCILLA SCHLUSEMEYI.R. better known to her friends as "Sluzy," has now taken over Hedy La Man 's place in Hollywood. When she entered, all eyes turned toward the door, which fact helps to prove that she is a huge success here! "CATHY" SMITH, the lead- ing lady in her own radio show, arrived late, but, as always, every- one was glad to see her. "BILL" SMITH, band director at the "Diamond Horseshoe," was there and kept all amused with his tales of New York. We were all glad to see that Bill had found a way to combine his two interests in life- Music and Girls. PHIL SHEPPARD, who is now head of the Musicians' Union in place of Petrillo, told this reporter that it won't be long now before legislation will be passed requiring an eighteen piece band to play at all weddings. I wonder. DICK THAYER was a guest at the party and we were all glad to see him and hear the good news that he is back at Weymouth High- not as a student— but as director of the new one hundred piece band. EDWARD TIERNEY came just before the part) broke up. When someone asked Ed what he was doing now, he replied that he is superintendent of the fellows who put the bends in the trombones. That's all for now except to say that the party was a huge success aad that everyone had a wonderful time. So until next time this is your Hollywood reporter Barbara Rux- ton, saying goodbye and good luck.

Don Page Fifty-six r \&^ A Better World through LITERATURE By ANTHONY DANIELE Jl N order to perpetuate peace, there is a drastic need of deeper understanding and friendly relationship among the peoples of the world. What greater aid is there for creating such harmony than the benefits derived from culture? Without doubt, a better world would result from the acknowledgement of the value of literature, music, and art. Literature, the written reflection of great men, has had much influence upon the lives of all. Thus it is most necessary that it embody material that is wholesome, meaningful, entertaining, and educational. Milton once said, "For books are as meats and viands are; some of good, some of evil substance." Today we live in a world teeming with literary works ; yet only a small percentage of these will stand the test of time, as have those of Shakespeare and Dickens. These two wrote to amuse, to entertain ordinary people ; yet the average person is really afraid to try to read these truly great writers. They think that such writers have no place in their lives. Inwardly, the real reason is a fear of not understanding or that too much effort will be entailed. It should be realized that a well-chosen story is an incessant challenge to a person's conception of life. It broadens a narrow life, increases a person's thinking, cultivates one's taste, and creates a literary appreciation. Through reading, people overcome prejudices by broadening their minds to understand the plights of others. Reading might be as essential a part of a man's life as eating or sleeping. Literature reveals to us the cares, aspirations, joys, sorrows, and dreams of human beings, so that we are enabled to sympathize with others. There are kinds of literature to suit every taste from the intelligent mystery to gentle humor. "Books are friends" is an expression we often hear. But do we ever hear the opposite? Some novels today, however, are examples of book enemies; they are of no value and satisfy only those who do not care to elevate their minds. Many read the works of true geniuses such as Dickens, Shakespeare, Thackeray, and Scott only when they are forced. Whatever type of literature desired can be found among the masters of the literary field. If one wants a story with an American history background, what books depict early American life better than Kenneth Roberts's "Northwest Passage" and "Arundel"? Whoever prefers war stories should try "Thirty Seconds over Tokyo" or "God Is My Co-Pilot." Social reform has yet to be more cleverly character- ized than it was in Victor Hugo's "Les Miserables", the novel about a social outcast, Jean Valjean. Even though most novels contain the love element, those who enjoy the so-called "love story" can find one of the highest type in "Romeo and Juliet", two names to this day synonymous with true love and sacrifice. Few ordinary people have ever heard of the Greek writer and philosopher, Plato, who, strange as it seems, wrote for everyone, young and old, learned and unlearned. Chaucer, renowned mediaeval Page Fifty-eight C \2±J poet, wrote about simple people for all people. If one wants a story of the struggles of the poor, one should turn to the life of Abraham Lincoln, who rose from a humble back-woodsman to the exalted position of President of the United Sates. There are countless worthwhile books for professional men, office workers, skilled laborers, and unskilled laborers. They need only to be hunted out. True, a fraction of literary value can be obtained from modern writers. Although much of modern literature is on a decidedly low scale, some of the more scrupulous writers have realized their tasks and have produced excellent material. What literature is more widely distributed than newspapers and periodicals? Many magazines, really worthless, are printed daily. Think of the thousands that are affected by these! The only one to remedy this situa- tion is the conscientious reader who carefully discriminates publications. Literature is a documentary of life. To understand human nature, to know your fellow being, to see in him his admirable points can be steps forward in a better way of living. Today literature is held in low esteem by many. In fact, it has been noted that in some high schools Shakespeare and Scott have been substituted by best-sellers. What competition literature has with the radio and movies which need little or no concentration ! This fact is a reason why people should read more. They cannot see in the movies or hear over the radio what they want at a given moment, but in books they can enjoy a different subject at any time. Reading is a means of extending our experiences geographically; we can travel to any corner of the world from darkest Africa to the snowy regions of the Yukon. Most unusual experiences can be gained by trekking westward to Oregon in Emerson Hough's "The Covered Wagon" or by flying with Anne Lindbergh's "North to the Orient." We can extend our experiences historically by spending "A Day in Old Athens" with William Stearns Davis or by partaking of the struggles of early American pioneers in the book, "Giants of the Earth." Reading carries us back years, centuries, generations, and projects us ahead to the future. Through books our experiences can be extended socially. How else can we more clearly understand social problems than by reading about them? Charles Dickens, one of the foremost novelists of all times, influenced a change of social conditions in England through his "Oliver Twist" and other novels. Literature can extend our experiences intellectually; we read to learn. Today when specialization in every field is steadily advancing, the intellectual capacity of all must be increased. Standards of education are rising and it will be unfortunate for the person who doesn't develop his intellectual abilities. Reading can extend our experiences emotionally. In reading substantial material, we can find solutions to our emotional problems. It does not seem possible that a person can overcome an emotional crisis in his life by reading. However, it is true. To illus- trate: the juvenile editor of "Scribner's" once made this statement, "When I was of an early age, my father died ; I was broken-hearted. By reading a book telling how a girl of the same age as I came through, when both her parents died, I, inspired, overcame my grief." This quotation proves how helpful a book can be in time of an emotional setback. Lastly literature can expand our experiences morally. Where else are moral virtues better exemplified than in such works as Tennyson's "Idylls of the King," Booker T. Washington's "Up from Slavery", or Lowell's "Vision of Sir Launfal"? Literature is inescapably moral, and reading and studying it have a moral effect. Whether the effect is good or bad depends upon the reader. No one can read a book without gaining some moral significance from it. Every day that we read the news- papers, we get either favorable or unfavorable information. Whenever we read a magazine, we get decided ideas from its various articles. Thus we should strive to read whatever will help us to face all problems, whether they are social, emotional, or moral, in order to bring about a better world, a world free from the nihilistic doctrines of communism, anarchy, and immorality. c^SV. Page Fifty-nine A Better World through MUSIC By SALLY MATHEWS E man who hath not music in himself, nor is not moved with concord of sweet sound, is fit for treason, stratagems, and spoils." Shakespeare We are all familiar with music in its broader function — that of relaxation and recreation — but music has other and equally important functions bearing on everyday life which merit wider recognition. Music has a definite influence on character. Everyone realizes its power over human emotions. It is, perhaps, a little more difficult to picture the effect on character, but the one would naturally follow the other, since character is, to a large extent, a product of the emotions. Membership in a music group, while providing contacts, satisfies a natural desire. Aside from this, a great deal of the routine of musical group work is excellent training. One cannot succeed in any such organization unless he is physically and mentally alert. Playing an instrument calls for complete co-ordination of eye, ear, hand, and head, thus teaching concentration of the finest type. Participation in such a group teaches the im- portance of teamwork. A person learns to realize that, although he alone does not comprise the whole group, his absence will destroy the balance of instruments or voices, thus spoiling the desired effect. The lessons of routine, alertness, co-ordination, concentration, punctuality, co-operation, and the importance of the individual as an integral part of the group which are learned in such organizations, will be invaluable throughout life. There is no doubt that music is a social asset. A person who can sing or play an instrument is bound to be a welcomed member at parties and social gatherings ; he never lacks for company. Moreover, one who is thus the centre of a group assumes a certain responsibility in his anxiety to please, thus becoming a sort of leader. The arguments for music as a character-building influence are strong, and yet the present scheme of general education often fails to accord music its rightful place of importance. Music hath charms to soothe the savage breast. It also can pacify the savage in the civilized breast. Even as David dispelled Saul's evil moods, and refreshed him by playing the harp, so today music is an important factor in social problems and crime prevention. Statistics show that of 30,000 children enrolled in the Music School Settlement in the heart of New York's East Side, not one student in twenty-five years had ever been brought before a Juvenile Court for delinquency. Now, eighteen years later, this marvelous record still stands. Furthermore, reports from penal institutions Page Sixty *\S^? show that musicians and musically educated persons rarely commit crimes. Music- induces moods and states of mind that are incompatible with crime. Plato said, "Music is a moral law. It is the essence of order and leads to all that is good, just, and beautiful." As far back as primitive times, when man began to sing or beat out rhythm on drums, music became a serious and essential thing in life. It became a part of his work and has continued so throughout the world among people who engage in handi- crafts and in mass labor. Work songs, such as the "Volga Boatman" and hundreds of others, have relieved monotony and stimulated workers, even under cruel and oppressive conditions. The advent of the phonograph and the radio put music into millions of homes and increased interest in this art. About twenty years ago, a group of men came to realize that there was an entirely new and different field for music. Experiments showed that by relieving the monotony of mechanical operations by music, the efficiency of workers was increased, error decreased, nervous tension and fatigue were lessened, workers were happier and more co-operative, and their morale was noticeably raised. Thus, functional music, a planned music service, is revolutionizing conditions in offices, factories, and public places. A great many scientists and physicians believe that music has healing power. Science is on the threshold of many important discoveries regarding its healing possibilities. From ancient times to the present, some degree of the influence of music is traceable in national and international movements. Through the ages music has excited martial enthusiasm. Minstrels and monks of ancient times encouraged peoples to defend their lands. Luther used music to a large extent to bring about the Reformation. It was said of him that in his hands the soul and mind of the German people were as a lyre in the hands of the artist. The songs which became popular during World Wars I and II furnish evidence of the impetus music gives to troops which, in many instances, spells victory. That it was the influence of the music and not the words is illustrated by the following story told by Conan Doyle. "Singing lustily from start to finish of a battle, Russian soldiers won a position. A spectator inquiring what were the words that so inspired the Russians was told they were 'Ivan's in the garden picking cabbages,' repeated over and over again." There is no doubt that a tune and the instruments which bring it to the public exert a potent influence be it in religion, in social matters, or in national or in- ternational politics. Just as music has influenced history in the past, so will it exert its influence today and in the future. Music is international. There is no better way to understand a foreign people than to study the music. As people sing and play each other's music, they grow to understand each other better ; and people working, singing, playing together are not likely to turn their thoughts to fighting. At no time has music been more needed than now to bring about understanding and harmony and thus prevent war, the arch crime of nations. Music is pure poetry expressed through tone instead of words. Poetry in a foreign tongue might be entirely meaningless to us, whereas music of foreign lands can be understood and appreciated by all. Music is the universal language. As Herbert Spencer, who was a great believer in the power of music in the world, once remarked, "Music must take rank as the finest of the fine arts — as the one which, more than any other, ministers to human welfare." c"^5l» Page Sixty'one A Better World By PATRICIA WEEKS THROUGH ART -Hhe idea that art exists only within the frames in museums and galleries is as Victorian as horse-hair furniture." Art today is an important phase of everyday life; it affects the lives of men, women, and children in modern times more than it did in the days when confined within the galleries. It has always been important in respect to the fine arts, but in modern times many more practical uses are being found ; for example, there is the increasing realization of its place in education, its aesthetic value, the growing field in industry, and the active part which art principles play in our everyday lives. Since Pearl Harbor, art has played a dramatic role in the rehabilitation of our wounded, emotionally and physically. Thus, it is not a means of expression limited to the gifted, nor a subject to be isolated in museums and galleries. When art was first introduced into the schools, it had a relatively unimportant place, with little stress upon its educational value. Owing to stepped-up civilization, noted educators are becoming more conscious that students need the creative ex- pression afforded by art to offset the rest of the curriculum in the development of a rounded personality. Furthermore, they have discovered that visual means is the most effective method of learning in any field. Thus art in education has two sides; it facilitates the learning process and it develops personality. Equally important to the educational value is the aesthetic which tends to develop inner-satisfaction, appreciation, and self-expression. Art is not placed in the schools to encourage pupils to become masters, but to encourage the pupil to use his own creative ability and to discover things for himself. Students know the personal satisfaction that can be derived from something of their own creation, bringing relaxation from specialized academic subjects and rounding out personality, which, in turn, regulates behavior. The importance of art in affecting personalities can be shown by the amount given soldiers for emotional and physical rehabilitation. An excellent example of the latter occurred at the Gushing General Hospital in Framingham. A middle-aged soldier had come through one of the worst battles of the war with a mental disorder. Doctors were so worried that, after much thought, they suggested that some form of art work might help him. Being unskilled in art, the soldier didn't know what to do with the pencils and paper given him. When he was told to draw anything that came into his mind, he began drawing two hills, one a little larger than the other. He worked over his drawing for many hours; and, when his doctors came to see him, he exolained it as follows. He had partially covered the two hills with rocks, trees, and projections of all kinds. On the upward slope of the larger hill, the projections symbolized his military life, starting with his early training and climaxing, at the summit of the hill, Page Sixty-two C \^J with the hattle which had placed him in his present condition. Symbolically, he was drawing the events of his own life. The obstructions on the other side of the hill symbolized the events which occurred after his mental collapse, the valley between the two hills representing the lowest point of his mental condition. At the time of this report he was three-quarters of the way up the smaller hill, showing a normal in- terest in things about him. The doctors were enthusiastic about his work, stating that the self-expression illustrated in his drawing was becoming an incentive to the patient to climb to the top of the second hill and back to mental health. This is only one of the many cases which have benefited from art therapy. Art in the form of crafts, such as weaving and carpentry, provides exercise for damaged tissue and muscles. The fact that this exercise is in the form of something creative is an incentive to keep the patient at his work. In the industrial field, the artist no longer concerns himself merely with painting and sculpturing, but he turns his talents to the production of such practical articles as home fixtures and the new field of plastics. Almost all industries rely upon art in some way, whether it be in their advertising or design. Art is also an important factor in everyday life. What dreary places homes would be if it were not for those artistic persons who set the modes for decorations! Many great inventions have emerged from the drawing boards of persons with creative ability. Decorations in homes, landscaping of gardens, and personal appearances all rely upon art principles. Color, feeling for fabrics, design of homes, and style of furniture ; all these greatly enhance an individual's outlook on the world. A person's interest in everything about him will be quickened if he becomes interested in some creative ex- pression, whether it be revarnishing of an old table, or just dabbing about with water colors. His sense of observation will become more acute and he will begin to see beauty in everything from the paintings of the masters down to an old umbrella stand. He will become aware also of the discordant things about him, of ill-proportioned spacing or clashing colors in his surroundings, tending to encourage him to improve his home and community. As Kenyon Cox once said, "Work thou for pleasure, sing or paint or carve the thing thou lovest, though the body starve. Who works for glory misses oft the goal ; Who works for money coins his very soul. Work for the work's sake, then, and it may be that things shall be added unto thee." Today we hope we have suggested ways in which your lives might be broadened by including within them some phases of literature, music, or art. These three have too often been overlooked, whether the neglect comes from the fear of trying something new, or of becoming so involved that enjoyment will be lessened. These are mere ex- cuses, for the small amount of work entailed will bring a great amount of pleasure. We are convinced that yours can be a fuller life if you will cultivate one of these closely allied subjects, literature, music, or art. c^!V» Page Sixty-three Bill Mcintosh.

Jl he Staff of the Reflector has just finished another successful year during which there have been three regular issues and the Year Book. For the first time it was necessary to have certain parts of the Year Book printed outside the Weymouth Vocational School. By choosing the material of most worth from all the classes we have endeav- ored to make our school paper one of the best. We hope our efforts have not been in vain and that the students have found the Reflector of interest. We of the Reflector wish to thank our faculty advisers, Mr. Prescott B. Brown, Miss Alice White, and Mr. James F. Steele, for the splendid and untiring service and advice they have given us. We wish to thank also the teachers for their assistance, and are grateful to Mr. Harry F. Duncan for his co-operation in print- ing the Reflector. We wish to extend our wishes to next year's staff.

STUDENT COUNCIL The Student Council, in this past year, was enlarged to seven members from each of the three upper classes. Before this, the number has been five from each class. This change was made so that the Council could sponsor more affairs. As usual, the Athletic Dance was held in December, and another dance is planned for October of the coming year. The senior members of the Council took part in a program at Plymouth High School where a convention of all Student Council bodies of southeastern Massachusetts was held. There was also a spring convention at Rockland. With a new year coming, we hope that the Council will be able to perform as effectively in the future as it has in the past.

The group, besides playing at assemblies, attended all the football games and delighted the spectators with snappy maneuvers, greatly enhanced by the colorful effect of the new uniforms. The band also participated in the annual Winter and Spring Concerts and took part in a special concert on March 14, when they played host to the A Capella Choir from Keene, New Hampshire.

ORCHESTRA T his year the orchestra has become increasingly popular outside the high school as may be seen by its performances for grammar school P. T. A.'s, the Teachers' Association, the Old Colony Club, and the De Molay Minstrel Show. Under the able and understanding director, Mr. Jack, the orchestra has presented programs including suites, waltzes, opera selections, marches, and light orchestral works. A notable improvement this year is the increase in the violin section. Several of the members attended the New England Music Festival in Brattleboro, Vermont, where they played in a one hundred piece orchestra composed of music students from all over New England.

This past year they participated in the Spring and Winter Concerts and also gave a program for the Monday Club. Seven choir members, along with members of the band and orchestra, attend- ed the New England Music Festival in Brattleboro, Vermont. All those who attended the special concert in March were given a thrill to hear the Keene, N. H. High School A Capella Choir, who gave our choir members something to strive for in the future.

SENIOR PLAY n the nights of February 14 and March 4 the Senior Class presented the three- act comedy, "A Date with Judy," adapted from the popular radio program of the same name, under the able direction of our new guidance teacher, Miss Edna Flaherty. The plot centres around Judy Foster, a vivacious sixteen-year-old, and her attempts to raise money for the Community Relief Fund Ball. Her father's win- ning the contest for the "most kissable lips," the reading of the "horrible confession" to the P. T. A. instead of Mrs. Foster's planned speech, and Mitzie's portrayal of a French divorcee to impress Mr. Martindale, a Broadway producer were only a few of the amusing situations which resulted.

FOOTBALL H ead Coach Harry Arlanson. following his return from his wartime position as a lieutenant in Uncle Sam's Navy, and assisted by Leo Hayes and Russell Maz- zola, piloted the Maroons to another successful season. Facing one of the toughest schedules ever tackled by a Weymouth team and knowing little or nothing about his material, Coach Arlanson had his work cut out for him. Spring drills were held for the first time in the annals of the school, and fall practice started in mid-August. By the time the first game rolled around, Weymouth was sporting a well drilled and smooth functioning eleven. Out of the eleven games played, Rindge, Belmont, North Quincy, Cambridge Latin, Braintree, Dedham, Watertown and Brockton felt the sting of defeat at the hands of the Maroon towners. The victory at Brockton was the outstanding game of the year. At Brookline, Weymouth went down to defeat in a bitterly contested game. Quincy eked out a victory over an injury riddled Weymouth team, while a determined Hingham eleven took advantage of Weymouth errors and beat the Maroons in a stunning upset. Although thrice beaten, the 1946 team, led by co-captains John Gallian and Gerald Sullivan, was never out-classed or out-fought.

BASKETBALL The Weymouth High basketball team was rather a disappointment this year to its new coach, Bill Erwin, in view of the fact that he usually produces champion- ship teams and that the squad was composed for the most part of veterans. The team compiled a record of six victories and nine losses. This does not truly tell the worth of the team, because three of the losses were by two points or less. Coach Erwin worked hard with no outside co-operation, except the able assistance of Bob Ambler, returned war veteran, to mould his boys into a team. The only sign of success appeared when the team won three games in a row in the middle of the season. This year's record was: B. C.

Most of the members of last year's team are back, including Captain Dick Liva. One of the toughest schedules in years has been made up. The aim for the year will be to win the State Meet at Newton and the South Shore Meet at Weymouth, which is again sponsored by Weymouth. The Schedule: April 25 Boston College High May 6 Hingham at Hingham May 13 North Quincy May 15 Brookline at Brookline May 19 Quincy at Quincy May 24 State Meet at Newton May 27 Milton at Milton May 29 Braintree at Braintree June 7 Brockton at Brockton June 3 South Shore Meet at Weymouth Page Scvcnty'four *\&-?

JL his year's edition of the Weymouth cross-country team, led by Captain Carl Bergfors, and coached by Mr. Oral Page, completed another successful season. The Marooons were victorious in 8 out of 9 dual meets and tied for fifth in the State Meet held at Franklin Park. The week before the team's only loss (to Arling- ton) and two weeks before the State Meet, Bob Parson, junior sensation, under- went an emergency appendectomy, which hindered the team's chances greatly. Since there were no outstanding "stars," every man on the team must be given credit for the fine record they compiled, which fact is a tribute to their school and coach.

At football games, basketball games, and track meets, the girls have stood behind the teams encouraging the boys. The entire group attended the State Track Meet at the Boston Gardens and the first basketball game with B. C. High at the arena, while, rain or shine, they were seen at the football games leading the crowd in cheers. Besides these various activities the cheerleaders held many pep rallies in the auditorium. The senior girls leaving this year are Barbara Dwyer and Priscilla Schluse- meyer whose places will be filled by two new cheerleaders who, with the rest of the squad, will be led by Jean Walsh. We all wish Jean and the girls the best of luck in the coming year. Page SeventV'six *\&-? First Row (left to right): G. Macri, K. Briggs, D. Swan, W. Mcintosh, J. Nesson,; Second Row: J. Pickett, E.

MANAGERS' CLUB TT he Managers' Club includes the managers of all the various sports carried on in the high school. It was organized for the purpose of helping the managers of these sports to understand better all the problems connected with their work. From week to week the coaches, including football Coach Harry Arlanson, basketball Coach Bill Erwin, track Coach Oral Page, gave talks on what they thought were duties of manager and how they should be fulfilled. During the fall Mr. Norman Loud conducted a course in First Aid.

BOOK CLUB The Book Club was organized this year under the guidance of Miss Gloster, our new librarian. Karin Thornberg was elected chairman, and Jeanne Norve, secretary. Books, both current and old favorites, were discussed at the meetings each month. During the vacations, the club went to several plays in Boston. One was "Call Me Mister," a musical revue, and the other was the musical comedy "The Red Mill." An "Open House" Day was held to introduce the new members to the library. Exhibits of different things were displayed. Refreshments were served later. We wish to extend our best wishes to next year's club and hope that every student who likes to read will make an effort to come to the meetings. Page Seventy'eight *\&^ First Row (left to right): D.

FRENCH CLUB This year "Le Cercle Francais" under the direction of Miss Canning had many enjoyable and successful meetings. The meetings which were conducted in French were held twice a month. A chairman was appointed each time to take charge of the program, which included songs, games, and other kinds of entertainment in French. One of the projects of the year was the adoption of a French war orphan, Monique Minquet, a girl eight years old whose father was killed in 1940 and whose mother died in 1943. A chairman and committee made up two packages, one of food and one of clothing, to be sent to the orphan every other week.

The club, under the supervision of Mr. Cleaves, was formed to provide instruc- tion and to stimulate interest in skiing. With a membership of approximately forty pupils, the club elected George Butler, president; William Jackson, first vice-president; William Livingstone, second vice-president; Karin Thornberg, secretary; and Roy Peterson, treasurer. Roald Heitmann served as senior technical adviser. Notwithstanding the deficiency of local snowfall, the group enjoyed many outings at the South Shore Country Club and exciting trips on the snow train to North Conway, New Hampshire. The present members wish to thank the art department, which this year designed the club insignia to be given to active members, and wish to extend to all students a cordial invitation to membership. It is hoped that even better opportunities for the club will prevail next year. LEGION ORATORICAL CONTESTANTS T he annual oratorical contest, sponsored by Weymouth American Legion Post 79, was held at Legion Hall on February 4, 1947. The subjects of the talks by the contestants were: Leo Boyle "Our Living Constitution" Robert Goodspeed "The Constitution, A Barrier Against Tyranny" Lorraine Kendall "The Privileges Of Our American Citizens" Michael Smith "Our Constitution, Temple of Liberty" Karin Thornberg "The Framing Fathers" In a close and spirited contest, Michael J. Smith was judged the winner. He later won the county championship. Judges of the contest were: Mr. Prescott Brown Weymouth High School Miss Muriel Goudey Quincy High School Mrs. F. H. McGrath Weymouth School Department Mr. Edward Oakman Brainlree High School Miss Alice White Weymouth High School c^Vi Page Eighty-one Class Will The grizzled old man had been sitting in the shade of the huge tree for at least two hours without getting anything resembling a nibble. Suddenly, something digged at the end of his pole. Quickly he reeled it in, excited at first, then disappointed. All he had was an odd-looking bottle. He was about to throw it back when he noticed something shining from within. Quickly he reached inside and pulled out a laded, brownish-yellow scroll. He untied the maroon and gold ribbon which held it together and began to read, his eyes widening with each line. We, the Senior Class of 1947 of Weymouth High Sc hool, under the obligation of the faith and trust now resting in our hands, do hereby undertake to present our bequests to the classes which will follow: To 211 we leave a squeak neutralizer to take care of the squeaking chairs. To Miss White we leave a traffic dummy to insure her safety. To 212 we will locks on the doors to save wear and tear on; Mr. Kelly. To Mr. Kelly we will an adding machine to make bookkeeping easier for him and his students. To 216 we bequeath a robot to take care of the blackboards. To Miss Canning we bequeath an elevated chair to allow her to see the students as they sneak away to walk around the school in the morning. To 217 we leave a set of "walkie-talkies" to keep law and order. To Mr. Cleaves we leave either a higher door or a lower floor. To 218 for future classes, we will a gilded waste basket in which to deposit gum; and, for the mistress herself, to save her voice, a record which repeats, "Come now, seniors!" To 304 we bequeath the quality of patience, with the type room on one end and the lab on the other. To Miss Silverman, we bequeath a swinging door between 303 and 304; to Miss Vining, we bequeath a new heater for 301 to help on those cold winter days. To Mr. Whittle we leave an atomic bomb to quiet the assemblies. To Mr. Lyons we will an electric eye to determine whether or not excuses are written by the parents or by the pupils. To the juniors we bequeath all the problems and happy times of graduation year. To the sophomores we leave the pledge to continue the good sportsmanship shown at Weymouth High School. To the freshmen we bequeath the relief of becoming sophomores, so that they will no longer have to be called the pea-green freshmen. To room 3 and Mr. Whittemore we will an X-ray machine to detect early lunch- eaters behind raised desk covers. To Mr. Whipple we leave a turnstile to keep the boys from crowding the office the first thing in the morning. c^V> Page Eighty-three To the automobile shop and Mr. Baton we bequeath a pair of roller skates to help him get around the shop faster. To Mr. Sherwood, the cabinet and carpentry shop we will the dream that some day they will have a new dust-collecting system. To Mr. Clark and the sheet metal shop we leave one sheet of stainless steel to compensate for that used in the making of bracelets. To Mr. Boland we bequeath the gazelle boy to run errands for him. To Mr. Duncan we will all of our old excuses so that in his spare time he may print a work of fiction. To Mr. Mahn we leave a box of sleeping tablets so that he won't lie awake nights, worrying how the boys are making out in their work after graduation. To Mr. Klay we bequeath an inch worm to do his measuring in the mechanical drafting class. To Mr. Nelson we will a robot to sweep up his room after his sophomores leave- each period. ToMr. Lynch we leave two strong boys to carry the large barrel out to the incinerator. Our final request is that future graduating classes of Weymouth High School will measure in every respect to the high qualities of good school citizens that characterize the Class of 1947. The old man sighed, recalling fond memories of that class of classes, his class. For a moment after reading the scroll he sat quietly smiling, reminiscently. Then he resumed his fishing, happy with his day's catch. Page Eighty'four r \&-' WOODLAND STUDIO UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT 58 Commercial St. Weymouth, Mass. Tel.
